I have many scarves as I used to breed llamas and spin their wool.
I have a garage full of wool and do not know what to do with it -I have about 15 lovely delicate hand knitted winter scarves, and I also have bought some summer ones made of cotton.
I've crocheted scarves for winter, but I love buying material ones too. Almost all of my material scarves are from Op Shops, and cost me practically nothing (just a couple of dollars).
I have about 5 or 6 tucked away in a drawer, to keep my neck warm, or just to give some extra something to whatever I'm wearing when I go out sometimes. I love them!
Both!!! When I lived in Victoria ,I used to spin lovely yarn from coloured fleece and then I would knit my own beautiful scarves for Winter. I now live in North Queensland and have no need for such items. I have a lovely collection of vintage silk scarves though which I have bought from Op shops at almost no cost.I often simply attach one to the strap of my handbag for a bit of vibrant colour! Some of these are hand painted by local artists and thus the colours are extremely cheerful so they do add a real extra little something to whatever I happen to be wearing without actually being a clothing article.
I love wearing scarves, & the weather is now starting to need a scarf! They keep my neck warm, as well as looking 'very fashionable'!
Have many different types, but my 'fave' is my 'traditionally' coloured Burberry, bought in department store, in Tokyo. It was $250 CHEAPER than in Australia!
It's cosy soft, warm & suitable for ANY outfit!
I haven't worn a scarf in years! I guess it comes with living in a climate where it gets extremely cold in winter. I've just gotten used to it. I rarely wear anything other than a jacket, and a knit cap. On occasion I'll wear glove if the steering wheel of my car is freezing cold, but that's about it.
I've never made my own scarf. I love the idea of it, but I'm far too lazy and I love the designs and feel of scarves in the shop. I have a slight scarf obsession and my current favourite brand does them so well that I'd never be able to make one just as good, nor as stylish!
Both! I have made lots of scarves for myself but I also have a stash of silk scarves I've bought or had made for me over the years.... when I was working I thought they looked more professional than a crochet or knit scarf.
It is a mixture, I like to make them because I like to have something to do with my hands.
At the same time if an attractive one catches my eye I am not a purist, and am happy to help the economy by purchasing said scarf.
